But who are all these characters and what are their intentions? Take clues from their behaviors along the way. When the major challenges and near failure comes (and they will), you'll be holding on tight to the finish.
WWII history, Scenic Northwest U.S. setting, delightful [and a few not so delightful - lol, got to have them] characters, suspense, a compelling journey. . . what did I miss? Not sure, but don't miss this novel from Delores Topliff. Thrilled for her she was able to weave her own childhood dream into the story.
Set against the background of WWII in 1942, the reader feels as though they've been dropped onto the floating library. The reader gets to experience the beautiful Columbia River and the people living along the banks. Anne and Ted went to school together along with Josh Vengence, and it was always understood that Anne and Josh would maybe one day marry. But Josh isn't on the river with them--he's been drafted, and Anne finds herself falling in love with Ted. Her mechanic returns her feelings.
Not only that, but both Anne and Ted are anxious to prove themselves. Anne feels responsible for her grandfather's death, and Ted feels like a failure after being turned down by the draft board for having flat feet. They get their chance when confronted by a Japanese sub in the Columbia River that wants to take over their boat.
I really enjoyed reading Books Afloat and look forward to the next book by Delores Topliff.
